Shorting C3-ai shares

There are currently 2.1 million C3-ai shares held short by investors – that's known as C3-ai's "short interest". This figure is up from 0 last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting C3-ai shares can be evaluated.

C3-ai's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

C3-ai's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of C3-ai shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of C3-ai shares traded daily (recently around 15.1 million).

However C3-ai's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of C3-ai shares, or, against the total number of tradable C3-ai shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case C3-ai's short interest could be expressed as 0.02% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 C3-ai shares in existence, roughly 20 shares are currently held short) or 0.0502% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable C3-ai shares, roughly 50 shares are currently held short).

Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against C3-ai.
